Consider this a read-along, ride-along blog about the ultimate road trip: down the entire Pan-American Highway. That drive inspired my latest memoir The Drive: Searching for Lost Memories on the Pan-American Highway — on sale everywhere June 13th from Seal Press, a Hachette Book Group company.
Following the blog won’t spoil the book for you. Each post is bonus material that didn’t fit in the print or audio version — photos from my pro-cinematographer husband, maps, quips, mishaps and revelations. Since blogs didn’t exist during my first (1973) and second (2003) journey down the Pan-American, I’m titling each post Drive Day X minus 14 years — sort of a retrospective road trip reboot. Hitch a ride with me; you don’t even have to pitch in for gas!
In addition to blogging, I write screenplays and non-fiction. My first book was a collaboration with my photographer-husband Gary Geboy. I wrote the narrative for his “Transfer of Grace: Images of the South Carolina Lowcountry,” published by Joggling Board Press. My second book, also with JBP, was “The Other Mother: a rememoir” and is available on Amazon, through the publisher and on Audible.
